Frequency Multiplier 8-Pin SMD Bulk
Avago Technologies’ AMMP-6120 is an easy-to-use integratedfrequency multiplier (x2) in a surface mountpackage designed for commercial communicationsystems. The MMIC takes a 4 to 12 GHz input signal anddoubles it to 8 to 24 GHz. It has integrated amplification,matching, harmonic suppression, and bias networks. Theinput/output are matched to 50 Ω and fully DC blocked.The MMIC is fabricated using PHEMT technology.The backside of the package is both RF and DC ground.This helps simplify the assembly process and reducesassembly related performance variations and costs. Thesurface mount package allows elimination of “chip & wire”assembly for lower cost. This MMIC is a cost effective alternativeto hybrid (discrete-FET), passive, and diodedoublers that require complex tuning and assembly processes.
